Subj: Is the JSA going to be reborn via DOOMSDAY CLOCK?

I certainly hope so. It would seem like a natural play considering Johns is writing and Johnny Thunder is figuring prominently so far.

Looking back, the JSA revival starting in 1999 was something of a minor miracle. It took old, low-profile characters, and produced a team book easily on par with Morrison's JLA and Busiek's Avengers. It was arguably the best title of the early aughts.

Just such great quality and consistency from Robinson, Goyer, Johns, Sadowski, Kirk, Kramer, Bair, Morales and more. I fondly recall that this was a "no look" monthly pick up for me at the comic store. Didn't even have to Byrne-steal it to know if I wanted it or not!

I recall the book jumped the shark, IMO, somewhere along the Kingdom Come/Gog storyline that just dragged out forever. And I didn't feel the heat of the title when it went back to number 1 after "Infinite Crisis."

Regardless, I look back very fondly at the '99 reboot and hope DC can bring that team back into the fold.
